This is Why the FDA Shouldn’t Regulate Anything

New dietary ingredients” are the government’s code phrase for supplements, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) wants to prohibit your access to all-natural, health-supporting herbs and food ingredients which have been used as medicine for centuries.

These “new dietary ingredientsaren’t new, despite the FDA’s lingo. They’ve been tested over time by award-winning chemists, doctors, indigenous healers, and lay people alike. So, why is the FDA trying to regulate the supplement industry with such renewed vigor? Continue reading

JAMA: Over 30% of All ‘FDA-Approved’ Drugs Have Grave & Deadly Side Effects

A study from The Journal of the American Medical Association has exposed safety issues occurring in over 30% of FDA-approved drugs between 2001 and 2010.

Close to one-third of drugs approved by the FDA are found to have safety problems, according to a research report from The Journal of the American Medical Association.

JAMA’s report stated that these safety issues, known as “postmarket safety events,” are “common after FDA approval, highlighting the importance of continuous monitoring of the safety of novel therapeutics throughout their life cycle.” Continue reading

How dangerous is your painkiller?

Scientists calculate the EXACT risk of having a heart attack or stroke if you take ibuprofen or four other popular tablets…

The heart dangers of ibuprofen, celecoxib, mefenamic acid, diclofenac and naproxen – taken by millions worldwide to dampen pain – have been assessed.

Taiwanese experts have concluded that the five different tablets could all affect the heart within four weeks, but some are more dangerous than others. They assessed the odds of a major cardiovascular event for each of the popular painkillers, using data from 56,00 adults with hypertension – high blood pressure. Continue reading

‘Same big pharma that hooked people on opioids now profits again from addicts’ switch to heroin’

The same pharma companies that profited from the opioid epidemic in the US by hooking patients on their drugs are profiting again as their victims migrate to heroin and participate in needle exchange programs, an attorney told RT.

The opioid epidemic is one of the biggest stories of 2017. The number of people dying from big pharma’s prescription narcotics has skyrocketed. But the same pharmaceutical companies that profited from creating the crisis in the first place, and received a slap on the wrist for it, are now profiting from it again, attorney Peter Mougey said in an interview with RT America’s Mike Papantonio.

Big Pharma is polluting the environment as well as your health

Pharma factories leak waste, worsening the superbug problem

Big Pharma’s many wrongdoings are well-documented, but most of us focus on the damage they’ve caused to human health. Unfortunately, a new report shows that the environment is also suffering because of their practices – and it’s setting a chain of events in motion that could undo all of the medical progress made in modern times.

Proof that ADHD is a Fake Disease

Some children are better at paying attention than others. Some can cope with, or even enjoy, a school classroom setting. Some kids have more energy than others. Some are good at following directions, and some are easily distracted.

But just because a classroom is not a good environment for many children does not mean they have a disorder. They may have an Attention Deficit because they are bored. They may he Hyperactive because they are cooped up and forced to sit still at a desk. But this does not constitute a Disorder. Continue reading

Tamiflu Hallucination Outbreak Spread Across U.S.

~ Forewords ~
I lay the FAULT of this kind of Big PHARMA murders right at the feet and laps of the entire medical profession. I have yet to meet any doctor or all those TV mouths on the so called *news* stations who are constantly hammering folks to get the Flu Shot or some other Big Pharma concoction and REFUSING to tell folks about the pH balance that PREVENTS the viral and bacterial illnesses. The goal is to make MONEY and the information on how to PREVENT an illness does not make them any money – the FACT that those Big PHARMA concoctions kill people is never mentioned until enough of them die that it has to be reported on.

Surviving Cancer 16 years later: Everything new is well forgotten old

Empower yourself, learn to heal today! ~ T. Copenhaver

My husband is a sixteen-year cancer survivor. When he was diagnosed in 2001 there were no books, no seminars and very few options for Acinic cell cancer. The treatment proposed was very disfiguring with probable facial nerve damage; and the only two people the local surgeon had operated on were dead. Choosing a well known teaching hospital instead, we prepared for surgery number 2—to correct the misplaced surgical drain shooting saliva out of the back of his ear; and to remove the other half of the tumor we were told was left behind from surgery number 1.

~ Foreword ~
This following article lacks understanding of cause and effect. The government caused the opioid crisis. They made pain the 4th vital sign. Every clinic and hospital was evaluated, surveyed, and rated on whether a pain score was done on each patient and if the pain was helped by the doctor. Ratings and financial rewards were tied to the outcome. ( sounds like the VA scandal doesn’t it? ) Every doctor with a working brain thought this was foolish and would lead to addiction. The Electronic Medical Record has continued this as a performance standard. Babies have their pain score recorded in ER notes. Here is my solution: 1. Dump the pain score. 2. Dump the EMR that depersonalizes medicine. 3. Teach your children that pain during life if normal. 4. Stop pretending that we can prescribe narcotics and they will not be addicting. ~ Rosemary Stein, MD
